SAINT-GAUDENS' 1905 ROOSEVELT INAUGURATION MEDAL LEATHER POUCH

Last week Megan Fenselau of the American Numismatic Society forwarded a press release about the recent Coinage of the Americas Conference dedicated to Augustus Saint-Gaudens. I was too slow to ask for them in time for last week's issue, but here are images of the leather pouch mentioned on the release. -Editor

During the search of the trays, ANS curatorial assistant Sylvia Karges had come across a bronze printing block and a leather pouch, which were apparently specifically made for Saint-Gaudens' 1905 Theodore Roosevelt Special Inauguration Medal.

These had been part of an important purchase made by the ANS in 1961, of items that had come through the family of Augustus' Saint-Gaudens' brother Louis.
